Bhopal, Feb 4 (IANS) A 13-year-old girl was allegedly raped here by her cousin and when she complained to her father, he too sexually assaulted her, the police said Wednesday. “The girl in her complaint said that first her cousin raped her and threatened her of dire consequences if she told anyone about it. However, when she told her father about the incident, he instead of taking any action, also indulged in obscene activities with her,” the police said.
The girl then told her mother about the incident who took her to the Women’s police station here and lodged the complaint Tuesday night following which the police booked the cousin for rape while the father was booked for indulging in obscene activities with his daughter.
The girl’s father works as a labourer here. Her parents had separated about five years ago and she and her younger sister sometimes lived with the mother and sometimes with the father. Her mother had no objection to her daughters staying briefly with their father.
